Anchor crashes scooter on live TV


NEW YORK (CNN) – A TV anchor loses control of a scooter and parts of a ceiling cave in on some sportscasters.

It was what you might call a rough stretch for those who make a living on live TV.

On KTTY’s Good Day LA, they had come to the grand finale of their hot holiday gifts segment.

Ready for disaster as anchor Lisa Breckenridge positioned herself on a $1,000 electric scooter.

“We are out of here! (panicked screaming) Over no!  Oh my face,” said Breckenridge as the scooter drives off.

Studio roadkill as the disco version of silent night played on. Lisa went to the hospital to make sure she was okay.

Lisa posted a photo of herself giving a thumbs up alongside a paramedic. The website TMZ wrote “all’s well that ends with a hot firefighter, right?”

The firefighter instagrammed “they called me ‘hot’ lol.”

Meanwhile some Canadian sportscasters found themselves in hot water.

“Or the backup goal tenders and say (panel crashes down) there goes a piece of the roof on live television.  Are you all right? On live television, the studio just fell apart,” said the reporter.

A close call but no injuries. Lisa described her injuries as “just swollen and bruised and slight head injury.” She just missed slamming into a TV, then hit the barriers and knocked over a second TV.

The owner of Route 66, the store that loaned out the scooter, told CNN “it has awesome brakes, if only she used them.” He also said if you google Lisa Breckenridge, she falls down a lot.

We did and she does. But the thing about Lisa, she gets back up and back on.
